THE INFORMATION BELOW IS RELATED TO 2022. 2023 INFO COMING SOON.
Be sure to read everything on this page, because it has the answers to pretty much any question you might have regarding this year's festival. Get ready for our biggest party yet, Rose City Music Festival, presented by Peters Autosports, on October 14th in Downtown Tyler. The entrance will be at the corner of Broadway & Erwin. Please have your tickets out and ready to be scanned. Your tickets can be digital & scanned on your phone or printed
JUST LIKE THE NFL, THERE IS A CLEAR BAG POLICY!
Regular purses, backpacks, cooler-bags, fanny-packs or anything larger than a phone case that is not clear will not be admitted into the festival.
Gates open for VIP at 2PM and GA ticketed attendees at 3PM. Concert-only attendees can arrive at 4:45PM.
Rose City is a rain or shine event, as printed when you bought your tickets and on our website. Even if it's raining, we party. HOWEVER, lightning is NOT rain. If there is lightning and/or severe weather in the vicinity of the festival, everyone will be evacuated from the event to their vehicles or to other shelter. In the case of consistent severe weather, festival officials will meet with public safety officials and the bands to determine the best course of action. Also as printed on our Festival Policies, no refunds will be given.
Parking is free, unless certain businesses wish to charge at their lots at their own discretion. We recommend getting downtown early. There is a free parking garage one block from the gate at the corner of Broadway and Elm Street, and lots of parking all around downtown. We will have designated handicap parking on the ground floor of the parking garage at Broadway and Elm.
Yes. Keep in mind that we will have a designated area in the general admission part of the Square where chairs will not be allowed to offer more people the opportunity to stand and be close to the stage. This will be in addition to chairs not being allowed in the VIP area directly in front of the stage. There will be plenty of room for VIP and non-VIPs to have chairs with great views of the stage, however. Plus, we think you should stand for killer music anyway.
Drink tickets must be purchased for all alcoholic beverages. And then after purchasing your drink tickets, you can head to the bar! Plus, a VIP bar in the VIP section. Non-alcoholic beverages may be paid with cash or credit cards.
Any who comes to the festival from 2-5pm will be able to enjoy all the samples from our vendors HERE
Will there be food served after the sampling?
Yes, other food vendors will be selling during the event.
Outside food or drinks, strollers, no trays (that includes cardboard lids) weapons, drugs, coolers, friends who waited too long to buy tickets, pets (service animals are welcome, of course, with proper documentation) and bad attitudes. Read more of our festival policies here.
Restrooms will be near Broadway & Ferguson. The VIP section will also have restrooms.
We think you already know the answer to that ...we encourage getting your ticket ASAP as we anticipate being sold out!
